Advancements in e-knowledge technologies are happening in three main areas: Web Infrastructure, Applications Integration and e-Knowledge Standards.

Web Infrastructure:
The development of the Semantic Web, Grid computing and Internet2 are enhancing the capacities of the World Wide Web and Internet. Technical standards and protocols are essential to mainstreaming these next generation capacities.

Applications Integration:
Web services related technologies (XML, SOAP, UDDI and WSDL) will enable disparate applications and platforms to communicate and engage data easily and seamlessly.

e-Knowledge Standards:
Emerging standards will enable e-knowledge to be captured, understood and re-applied in new contexts. This includes standards for metadata, learning management, content modularization, knowledge management, workflow and performance support.

These developments will enable the development of enterprise repositories for collecting, maintaining and exchanging e-content, context and narrative for learning, research and other forms of scholarship.

Cross-enterprise marketplaces for e-content will become major factors in most industries. Such marketplaces will open previously unattainable secondary markets for e-content.
